Love Food, Hate Waste

Food Waste Action Week took place during March, a campaign to get people to think of ways to waste less food and save money and time preparing meals.

Love Food Hate Waste has teamed up with TV personality and champion of eating well on a budget, Jordan Banjo, to share easy kitchen hacks to make mouth-watering meals that will pay us back in time, cost, and taste.

Jordan said: “As a dad of two (with a third on the way) I can absolutely relate to not having enough hours in the day.

“It’s probably fair to say that no-one enjoys throwing food away but luckily, it’s not difficult to re-purpose your uneaten food and get that little bit of life back to spend with your family doing something you love.”

Love Food Hate Waste’s top tips for easily and safely enjoying our food again with minimal effort include:

  • Store leftover portions safely. Cover and store in the fridge and use within two days.
  • Make your freezer your friend. You can safely freeze most leftovers; label and date them so you know what’s in there.
  • Defrost safely – defrost extra portions in the fridge or microwave and reheat until your food is piping hot.
  • Cook a little extra for the next day – who says there’s no such thing as a free lunch! Enjoy a quick, easy and tasty meal, saving yourself all the preparation and cooking time!
